The first qualifier for Indian teams has concluded as Enigma Gaming makes its way through to the Valorant India Invitational, scheduled to take place in Hyderabad on LAN from 14th to 16th October with a total prize pool of $100,000 USD (INR 82,34,305).

Enigma as part of 'Group-B' started by defeating Gods Reign, winning consecutive maps, Ascent and Bind, with a clean '13-6' and '13-2' scoreline.

This was followed by the group stage finals where Enigma faced Velocity Gaming. It dropped the first game on Ascent (13-9) but came back fighting to nullify the deficit with a win on Pearl (13-4).

The decider on Icebox was closely contested and witnessed an epic comeback from Enigma, as it fought back from a '5-11' position to finish the map '13-11', winning eight rounds in a row.

Having made its way to the grand final, Enigma went up against Revenant Esports where the winner would qualify ahead to the Valorant India Invitational. The first two maps were quick as Enigma closed them out with '13-5' (Icebox) and '13-4' (Ascent) scoreline. Revenant did fight back on the third map Bind (13-4) but failed to ensure another win. Enigma then walked away with the fourth and final map Haven (13-5).
